Welcome to Jenni's Saturday Writing Course

Hi, I'm Jenni and I'll be your writing secrets teacher.  Muhaha! <--Ahem.  Don't mind me, sometimes I get a bit carried away. *grins* 

I purposely decided to use a blog format so you can all join in and easily find old posts, instead of a FB group where many of you still are not allowed FB accounts.

You may invite anyone you wish to come along to the class with you as well.  Because I'm nice like that.  You do not have to be a teen, but you need to realize I am gearing these classes for teens and so don't expect them to be all stuffy and serious.  These will be a bit differently laid out than most online courses.  For one thing, the class is FREE! (wahoo!) and another, there are no grades.  Everyone gets an A+ here.  :)

Basically, this is just for fun.  As in writing totally rocks my socks--so I think it should rock yours too.  I plan on sharing my knowledge, just everything I know about writing.  Each Saturday I'll post a lesson.  That lesson will usually have a video of me saying howdy and then a breakdown of what I'm teaching that week.

I like to laugh.  I don't like to cry when I learn something new, learning should be fun, so don't plan on getting frustrated and cry--learning isn't about crying, it's about growing.  And most importantly see me for who I am:  Just a crazy mom (with way too many kids) who enjoys giggling as much as you do.  (No, seriously.  I'm always getting in trouble for laughing at all the wrong times.  Eeep.  True story.)

Anyway, if you're up for laughing and learning the awesome secrets of world building, dialogue, action, description, romantical moments, pacing, etc. then you're at the *write* place.  :)

So pull up your computer and have a seat.
Let the games begin.

PS From time to time you may notice a few minor errors, I can't catch everything, please don't expect perfection.  Just let me know what needs fixing on my posts and I'll do it.


I want you to comment below introducing yourselves and tell me what you'd like to learn about.  Over the next few weeks I'll be creating my essays and getting my lesson plans in place... and it would be a whole lot easier if I knew what the masses wanted to learn about, or what you needed help with most. So comment below--don't forget to leave a name of some sort.
